is so preventive or helpful. >> we live in a zone that does not promise friends. loneliness, you have fewer than one friend that cares about you on a bad day, your life expectancy drops eight year. but you go places, and people are in live long social networks where they commit to each other. if things go well for them, they share the wealth, and if something goes bad, someone has your back. i sat down with one of the groups, five 102-year-old women, and they're still there. >> psychologically, it's not as communal as maybe it was in times past here. >> so 15 years ago, the average american had three good friends. we're now down to about 1.5 good friends per person. we're watching over four hours of tv a day, and not enough good tv like this right here, but it's this interaction, which should be a uniform prescription doctors ought to be giving patients. we know that volunteers have lower rates of heart disease, lower bmi, and lower health care costs. >> everyone at home right now is counting their friends. it's always a joy to have you on the show, i think you make everybody happier
